What People are Saying About This

Shi Yan Ming Sifu

"I congratulate the world for this beautiful gift, wisdom from the life and travels of RZA, wisdom I truly believe draws from the deepest pools of human thought and spirit . . . When a wise monk passes away, the monastery builds a pagoda in his memory. Some pagodas get one floor, some get two or three. But if the man was known as the wisest and most enlightened of all monks, his pagoda gets seven. I believe the seven pillars of wisdom in this book are like the seven floors of an exalted monk's pagoda. They represent the wisdom, knowledge, and enlightenment of a soul that has never stopped training, never stopped learning."--(Sifu Shi Yan Ming, thirty-fourth generation Shaolin Temple warrior monk)

Cornel West

"RZA is a towering artist and deep thinker who has much to teach us. I salute his courageous vision and compassionate witness-as manifest in this book and his life!"

Like a street sage, the RZA pours forth wisdom in such a way that those who choose to open themselves to it can glean some fresh viewpoints as well as some insight.

words can't explain the depth of this book, Rza's cipher or his wisdom. this is a mere drop in the ocean of the making of Wu Tang. it's deep man deep! this is displayed in my house 24/7!
